ELSA Turku

ELSA Turku is the ELSA Local Group for law students at the University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University.

ELSA Turku is part of ELSA (the European Law Students' Association), an international network of European law students. Our association is a local group in Finland whose members study law at the University of Turku or Åbo Akademi University. As part of the international ELSA network, our goal is to promote the internationalization of law students and to support their professional and academic development.

We organize various events and study trips throughout the year. Our office is open on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12 noon to 2 pm. You can come to the office to drink a cup of coffee, read our member magazine, or just hang out in a good company. You can also buy patches for overalls and ELSA- cloth bags. The entrance to House B is between the houses A and B, with an elevator to the second floor, from the door on the left and immediately to the right.

ELSA – The European Law Students' Association

ELSA is an international organisation run by and for students. ELSA has more than 50 000 members coming from over 300 faculties of law. ELSA consists of ELSA International Board, National Groups (such as ELSA Finland) and Local Groups (such as ELSA Helsinki, ELSA Joensuu, ELSA Rovaniemi and ELSA Turku).

The activities organized by ELSA are divided into three key areas: Academic Activities provides many opportunities to practice important skills and explore legal career opportunities through excursions, moot court competitions and other academic events. Seminars & Conferences organises seminars and international events that provide opportunities to network and meet fellow students in Finland and abroad. STEP traineeships offer law students and young lawyers with valuable opportunities to work abroad.
